What is it about?
Literature reviews tell people what the scientific literature says about a topic. Systematic reviews are a type of literature review that follows agreed-upon rules to minimize bias and faulty conclusions. The rules also ensure that other researchers can re-run the review to see if they find the same results. This paper is our recommendations for running a systematic review to figure out whether mindful walking improves mental and heart health. Mindful walking is walking while cultivating an accepting, non-judgmental, and moment-to-moment awareness of one's thoughts, emotions, feelings, bodily sensations, and environment.
